Helping create more defining moments in public education

The Enrichment Fund for the Guilford County Schools makes it possible for all students to benefit from the same enrichment opportunities and for teachers to be as creative as they’re inspired to be. Each year, we award hundreds of small gifts that support high-impact learning experiences for as many people as possible. Our vision: that teachers dedicated to going above and beyond have the support to carry out transformative experiences for their classes — and every student can benefit from them.

The Fund in Action

We spread our support around to as many students and teachers as possible. With just a little extra encouragement, amazing things happen. Some students travel on an airplane for the first time. They present projects at regional and national meetings. They realize their professional path. Behind them are teachers who envision the opportunities that will launch their students’ learning to a new level. We’re here to help them both achieve their goals. Read their stories.
